The Stan Richards School's Equity Student Council is an advisory council of students that meets monthly during the school year to advise the school's faculty and administration on matters related to equity and cultural fluency. Students interested in joining the council should contact the school's Minority Liaisons, Lee Ann Kahlor or Rohitash Rao.
I am a senior Advertising major, and I am honored to serve as the Student Chair and LGBTQ+ Representative alongside many motivated students. I am excited for the opportunity to facilitate conversations with students, staff and faculty about the importance and impact of inclusive practices within the classroom and in the industry. We all have something to learn about each other, and I can't wait to explore how to effectively do that. | LinkedIn
I am a senior Advertising major and I am serving as the multiracial representative for the council this year. I spent most of my childhood in San Antonio, Texas, but have also lived in Japan and Virginia. With each place that I have lived, I have taken away a different experience of what it means to be multiracial. I am excited to work with this council in sharing students’ diverse experiences and advocating for increased representation in the media. In my free time, you can find me making a playlist for my weekly radio show on KVRX 91.7 or riding my bike through downtown Austin. | LinkedIn
I am a senior year public relations major and I’m the current international student representative. I was born in Colombia but I grew up in Costa Rica and later moved to Mexico City. Being exposed to these different cultures taught me the importance of diversity in education and life in general. I joined this council because I believe we can work together to make the Moody College of Communication a more inclusive place. In my free time, I like to bike around Austin and read articles about skincare.
I am a senior Advertising major from Houston, TX minoring in Business. I have the honor of serving as the Black/African-American Representative on the Diversity and Inclusion Student Council this year, alongside many talented students. Having lived abroad and attended international schools, I believe diversity and inclusion are not only crucial but necessary in shaping the future of our industry, as well as our world for generations to come. I look forward to hearing and learning from my peers and faculty in the conversations facilitated this term.
I am a senior Public Relations student with a double minor in Business and Arabic. I’m the Middle-Eastern representative from Houston, Texas, and am excited to see how we can increase awareness and respect in not only the Arab community, but all communities on campus. I am obsessed with YouTube, coffee, and learning about religions. | LinkedIn
